    Gail Ming and Constellation were wonderful to work with

    We worked with Gail Ming throughout our planning process and she couldn't have been better. She was a pleasure to work with and her team executed the plan flawlessly. We didnt have to worry about a single thing, knowing that the setup was in her hands.

    Wedding of our dreams

    There was only one place we considered getting married and were so happy we did! Gail and the team at the Fairmount Park horticulture center are phenomenal!!!! The execution of our wedding was top notch. I haven’t had service like this at the best restaurant in philly. The team was flawless. Food was delicious. Venue beautiful. I mean just stellar! Thank you for everything. If you’re considering this venue go for it! There were some extra costs we didn’t expect but at the end of the day our guests were wowed and it was worth it!
